Attacks across Iraq kill 27
August 27 , 2013
27 people were killed and more than 60 were injured during the shootings and explosions in Iraq.
The police said a hidden bomb was detonated inside a famous coffee shop in one of the attacks, killing at least 10 and injuring over 20 people.
In another attack that happened near the city of Mosul, gunmen killed five Iraqi soldiers being carried in a vehicle. July brought a tough time for the region given that 1,057 were killed in acts of terrorism.
Most of the violence in Iraq stems from discord between the two branches of Islam- Sunnis and Shiites.
